Dr. Quisenberry has an idea
(hat if Christianity is not practical,
it's worth very little. He believes
that the gospel appeals to body,
mind and soul. That the ministry
of the church is three fold, and
its mission is to minister to mans
every need. Many have caught
his spirit and are asking him to
point out those who may be in
ueed of help. The requests are so
numerous, that he has decided to
open the doors of his church for
the receipt of food, clothing
money and In fact any thing that
may be used to relieve the poor
and suffering. Many of the good
people in the country have ex
pressed a willingness to send
dressed turkeys, hens and chick
ens, meat etc One man has prom
ised to, send a whole pig. Dr.
Cuisenberry has asked the ladies
of his church and congregation to
help in this work. Donations of
toys will be gladly received. Any
clothing that may be altered will
be gladly made over and placed
where it will do most good. The
gifts of the people will be carefully
distributed regardless of class or
condition. Baskets and bundles
will be carefully made up and
delivered on Wednesday, Xmas
eve. If you want to help in this
work, call Dr. Quisenberry by
phone or write him saying what
you wish to do. If you know of a
case of need call his attention to
it He desires any one in want or
in trouble to come to him prompt
ly. If you wish to be really happy,
suppose you lend a hand in this
splendid work of love. Do it now.
P. S. All donations must be in
on Tuesday the twenty-third" Tell
Dr. Quisenberry right now what
he may expect from you. Drop
him a card, or call him on the

To The Tobacco Growers:
Sales Season of 1913-14 is Now On
Our daily average to date is better than 14 Cents
Having installed every known device to facilitate the handling of the tobacco
from the time it comes off the wagon until it goes oil the cars, we are better prepared
than ever to handle your crop.
Several of the largest buyers on this market will handle and prize their pur
chases at our plant. The fact is, it is much cheaper for these men to handle their to
bacco at the Madison Tobacco Warehouse because of the connection with the railroad,
aud our viaduct connecting the sales house with the prizing department does away with
any wagon haul. We guarantee to every grower the very best price. Thanking you for
your past patronage and soliciting same in the future, we are,

Our stock of clothing was never
more, complete than now. Every
thing in the clothing department is
strictly up-to-date. All the new
weaves, styles and colorings in favor
this season comprise this big stock
of clothing Men's, Young Men's,
Boys' and Clrildren'a Clothing in-
We have decided to close out our clothing stock,
lock stock and barrel. We need the room for our
ladies' ready-to-wear department, which is growing
to such an extent that we are compelled to make
more room for it. So the clothing end of our busi
ness must go.
Everybody in this city and county who has pur
chased clothing from us can testify to the high grade
of clothing we sell. They can also tell you that our
prices are always cheaper than the same quality can
be had elsewhere. We have decided to give these
same low prices for 30 days, and in addition we pro
pose to give one-fourth the price off on every purchase
made in the clothing department during this time.
If you need an up-to-date fall and winter suit
for yourself or any of your family; if you need a first
class Overcoat for yourself or your boy, come and
look at this great stock of up-to-date clothing and
figure what you will save by getting
each clothing purchase.
Don't overlook this offer. Don't pay more for
clothing not as good. Money saved is money made.
This is a chance you don't often get, coming right at
the time you need the stuff, and right at the time
when they are all fresh and new.
Remember this great clothing
offering begins Saturday, November
8th, and closes in 30 days. Don't
